Cluj-Napoca #3


The event has ended.


Be part of our event and be part of the largest open startup community in your region! Form a team, pitch your idea and share it with the world!

Be part of this global movement and interact with passionate startupers, business angels, mentors, experts, investors and community leaders in an informal setting. Let your ideas flow, mix, exchange and witness what could probably turn into the next big thing on the global market.

Forget about all the details and excuses that make you stick to your current premises. Challenge the status quo, meet the game changers, innovate with style, share talents.


In this 3rd Cluj-Napoca Startup Live series, we are going to emphasize the lean business principle which is based on customer-driven product development. The teams therefore will be asked to survey their potential customers to get instant feedback.

During the development process, the groups will receive guidance by coaches, business angels and former start-up entrepreneurs. The highlight of the weekend will be the final presentation in front of a panel of experts, who will provide insightful feedback.

On top of that, Startup Live offers networking at its best – meet your future co-founder or even investor during the event.


Simply purchase a ticket on our website. If you register as pitcher, you have 90 seconds on Friday (no slides) to get the crowd excited about your idea! No idea? Still cool, join one of the exciting projects.
